The Weeknd to make a pit stop in the Middle East for Grand Prix performance


Image Group LA/ABCThe Weeknd will be riding shotgun at this year’s Formula 1 2018 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. 

He’ll be the headlining act for the event’s after-race concert on Friday 23 in November.   

The Grammy winner is expected to perform songs from his latest album, My Dear Melancholy and from his 2015 album Beauty Behind The Madness, along with tracks from his House of BalloonsThursday and Echoes of Silence mixtapes.  

Weekend tickets and single day tickets are available to purchase now.  

In other news, fans also have the option to buy festival-themed merch from The Weeknd’s official website, but you’d better hurry — the XO Festival Drip collection will only be available for one more day.

You can choose from items such as t-shirts, jackets and long-sleeved shirts. 

The Weeknd’s debut Marvel comic book, The Weeknd Presents: Starboy – Vol. I – Issue 1, can also be purchased from the website as well.
